We hit the Burke Gilman trail with our neighbor Paul, and of course I didn't bring my camera because... who has time for picture taking when you're biking?
I look forward to more training for my STP endeavor, and feel so happy that I get to live in such a crazy great biking community.
I am so happy here :)

I celebrated by watching Back To The Future with a box of Apple Jacks and my new favorite water, Voss. Voss is great. Plus the bottle is glass, which makes me feel fancy. And the water is from Norway, and it's con gas.

Hey! How are ya! So here in the 7-people Christensen Household we use our laundry machine for about 10 of our 13 waking hours. It is ALWAYS going. Our poor machine is notorious for eating itself from the inside out, which is always an absolute tragedy. This time was no exception.
Beauty can come in all shapes and forms. Luckily for us, we have an innumerable amount of amazing neighbors who line up to have the privileged of doing our smelly laundry!
I should break the washer more often.
Love you Jayne :)
Anyway, here is my living quarters. Lovely overly-comfy bed... (I'm thinking about making it not so comfy because it's hard to get out in the morning.)
NEW SHOES!!! ON CLEARANCE!!! Sorry Hanna, they didn't have your size. But they are legitly hairy and everything. Love em.
The next day he emailed me a bunch of possibles that were on craigslist, but the thing is... I have very stubby short legs. And arms. And torso. So finding a bike to fit my dwarf self proved to be somewhat of a battle.
We went on many bike hunting sprees, but it was about 2 months before we found....
Thanks Seth for this great bike, I loves it :)

Last week we learned about Goals, and the importance of setting them. It got me thinking about the difference between a Resolution and a Goal. Of course they are different, but why is it that so many people make New Years Resolutions instead of New Years Goals? I couldn't think of any resolutions because I'm too proud to admit that I have things that need resolving, so I made goals for this new year. I wouldn't normally share them, but I figure if people know what they are, they might help me along.
Goals for 2011
- Read/record thoughts/study the scriptures every day
- Raise $7,000 for school by August
- Find a test (ACT, SAT, or something along those lines), study, and NAIL IT for scholarship purposes. (Don't know if this is possible, I'm kinda old and I know nothing about standardized testing, but it sure would make all these applications easier)
- Train for the Seattle To Portland (i.e. ride my bike HARD at least 4 times a week)
- Keep a Mission on my mind and prep for it daily
I'll have to say, I'm already impressed with myself. Of course I am, I'm just ending week one. Isn't everyone impressed with them self after week one?
Hm. I'll keep you posted.
